CDC Feathers

(1 customer review)


CDC Feathers (cul de canard) Because of natural oils on the feather, they are great in repelling water and possess great floatability. These feathers are naturally lightweight, strong and waterproof. See Description tab below for more info & some of the product reviews.

One of the product reviews:

CDC Feathers

“…Feathers from both packs seem to be in first class condition. Plume sizes vary from tiny and hardly useful to large (for CdC), larger than typical mallard CdC. The really tiny feathers mean there will be some waste from a pack, but not a lot. The vast majority of the feathers are of fly tying size.

Because these feathers have not visited a dye-bath they are fluffy and slightly oily – exactly the way CdC should be (those delicate barbules and natural oils are what make CdC float so washing, dyeing and even handling can damage CdC – natural is good!)

Given feather size, quality and quantity the pack price seems reasonable…”

    These feathers were exceptional compared to CDC feathers I’ve used in past. I hope this product remains available as long as I tie flies. Would like to see the tan or dun colors in stock.
